eric: we're going to the rules committee. we feel good where we are, we're still having con conversations h our members, to reflect people let's improvements. uma: that is house speaker paul ryan on fox news sunday today, saying he want toes tweak the gop plan to replace obamacare just a little bit more. but will the adjustments be enough to satisfy holdouts on the republican side. >> person in 50s and 60s does have additional health care
costs, opposed to those in 20 and 30s, we believe we should have more assistant, we're looking at that the for that person in their 50s and 60s, they experience higher health care costs. uma: joining us now, betsy bad roo--road --woodruff. >> let's talk about the fact that plan itself need adjust am before it will be able to win over conservative in the house. who are really concerned about the costs. because one of the big promises that was made to the voters of that, that obamacare was so costly for some people, that they were going to bring those costs down on premium and deductibles, yet the ryan plan, still, has according to the cbo report has a ways to go on meeting that promise. >> right, speaker ryan conceding this morning there will be cost
problem for senior, in particular low-income seniors, if changes are not made as it stands. that was a significant deal he himself made that concession that this bill needs to go through a shift. the question is, how -- what additional assistance does government provide to low income seniors so they don't see their premiums go up the way that cbo has predicted it will. is that enough to fruf rat fruse conservative republicans in the house that ryan has to pull through. uma: he says, he is confident that there will be a vote on thursday. why the sense of urgency right now to get it done this week before the break? there are a lot of conservatives, who want some tweaking done. they want to get to right. this something that they have been campaigning on for some
time. at the same time -- and the political optics, if this does not go well this could be a disaster for the g.o.p. when it comes to dealing with voters, and shows voters they will follow through on about what they promise. >> right, that is the point that senator tom cotton from arkansas has made, argue that house is moving too fast, the white house is moving too fast. we need to slow down, work out the nuts and bolts, that said, congressional leaders would say there are a fine night number of -- finiz finize finite number oy are talking about 3 different stages of healthcare reform, tom price with an idea of 3 buckets, first this piece of legislation that gets a vote thursday, then regulatory changes and more down
the road, the overall health care reform process is time consuming, that could be an argument to move quickly or a argument to move more slowly. i think that is why there is so much tension, among the ranks of capitol hill. uma: talking about impact that -- president has been critical to getting the deal done. the fact is, there are a lot of people who are still holdouts, what do you think trump has to do to convince these people to come onboard? >> it tough, there are two different types of holdouts there are ted cruz holzer out -- holdouts and susan collins, holdouts, those who are worry it is obamacare light, and still has government too involved in the healthcare market, for those, they want trump to roll back fede medhanie -- medicaid n sooner.
rather than down the road, and urgent to get those changes to make it go further than legislation, on other hand, you have susan collins holdouts a moderate republican from maine, she said this morning, she also was not ready to vote for the bill, but for opposite reason, she think its goes too far, worried about constituents seeing premiums go up and thing more expensive. and losing medicaid coverage they have. it going to be hard for president trump to make both people happy. in the house, republicans have a big enough margin they might be okay, right now it looks like they will be okay. but in the senate it different and complicated. >> it is complicated, houses, you say has a bigger margin, your prediction? your betting for thursday? >> i think it will passes. that is the sense they get. i think that president trump has done enough to have one-on-one
meetings with conservatives to work hard to lobby those guys. i could see is going through. senate is a different story, but my gut in the house, it is okay. uma: all right. thank you betsy. we shall see what is ahead. >> thank you. uma: take care. eric? eric: well uma, a loss for american journalist, pul pulitzr winning jimmy breslin has died, he died from complications from pneumonia, he was a long time columnist for new york daily news, he was a legend. on urban politics, and his unique new york characters, help expose crop hundre corruption in 1980s, his colorful writing and his career spans 6 decades.

southern afghanistan, it happened in helmand province, the spokesman for u.s. forces in afghanistan confirming to fox news that pentagon is weighing a decision to send more u.s. forces to afghanistan. more from london. reporter: the details are sketchy but nato said 3 u.s. soldiers were wounded after a member of afghan army opened fire on them, that soldier was then shot dead, this happened today at camp base in helmand province, similar to so-called insider attacks. several u.s. soldiers have been killed in these type of attacks, improved security means they are more infrequent.
afghan army said its soldier did not intentionally open fire today. there is no claim of responsibility in the attack so far. in the past taliban has said they infiltrated the afghanistan security services. many are in training and advisory roles they are in harm's way, there is talk of raising the numbers too, due to increasing instability in the country. around 10 days ago they opened attack on a military hospital, killing 38 people this attack was claimed by u.s isis. u.s. marines, they will most likely face a volatile situation on the ground there. uma: all right. thank you for that update, eric? eric: well uma, a reminder of sacrifice and dangers that our troops in harm's way face on front line.
there are other challenges when they return here at home, which is at the center of the here. george w. bush's aistic work is just one part of what bush institute does. >> it's america, people from all walks of life who put on a uniform. they volunteer to do so. and so i took people -- what an amazing country. one should not feel sorry for them, but be thankful to them, and help them. that is what we do here, i am so thankful you came down. i want to talk about. to vets, get on bushcenter do.og web site. we can help you. >> where you can find out more,
former army lieutenant colonel miguel hal, thank you for joining us, and thank you for having us. >> thank you for having he, and making the invisible -- visible. >> tell me about the work, there are people watching who have served, whose loved one has served, how they can get help. >> i like to start by saying that purpose of military service initiative is to meet president and mrs. bush's vision of honoring all those 9/11 veterans. with a particular emphasis on. am and addressing the invisible wounds of war, bushes know that by fostering this successful transition we enable a generation of resourceful, determined and experienced leaders who will continue to serve the nation for decades.
eric: how difficult can that be. you try to transition into civilian life. >> there are two areas that we found are most difficult. in one that all veterans and all spouses face it employment. the transition, within the military not only does our work meet our financial requirement but provides a sense of purpose and belonging. there really is a transition, and a change in language, and culture, that is part of that transition into the civilian workforce. we know if we get this right, these are the men and women who will come home and fill critical skilled work requirement, lead our current businesses and start new businesses and be more successful than know nonveteran. but we know that vets have to take ownership. with the partner at u.s. chamber of commerce, hiring our heroes, we have developed a platform, we call it vet road map.
but that is a tool we launched last month, to help all post 9/11 veterans, and military spouses take ownership, help tail oataylor their own transitn program and provide best in class resource. eric: the web site. >> vetroadmap.org, you can find it through bushcenter.org web site as well. eric: they would like vets they want have that service. >> they do, we work with major hiring coalition to help them adopt best practices, not only chamber but jpmorgan chase led job mission. you know all told about 700 major companies that are putting a significant effort forward. you know there is one issue,
eric, that impacts all veterans, when they have these injuries or not. that is the invisible wounds of war. one of the challenges with the invisible wound or the negative stigma and stereo type that also impact emplerimemployers and thy to hire. this is not something to fear. we're talking dramatic brain injury and psychological health conditions, like post-traumatic stress, these are actual injuries of war. eric: sometimes it is hard too admit they are that willing that about that is a challenge,. >> we found to these cignas stis serve as a barrier connecting veterans to the care they need.
we reached out to folks with united states, united kingdom and canada, and. and we found that over 85% of veterans say, that the negative stigma and stereo type serve as babiers to seek -- barriers in seeking chair. eric: what type of advice can you offer. >> we've established warrior wellness alliance, go to bus bushcenter.org web site. we have a network of networks, best in class. student veterans of america, wounded warriors project, and team 43, and others, the folks who are members can connection those members to the veteran that need care, to the best in class, private and public nonprofit providers.
so we need them to connect those veterans to best in class care, we know most veterans did not get their healthcare through the v.a. there is 4 things that all your viewers can do, i ask today. first know, understand and connection to veterans, know what invisible wounds are and how they are treated. second mentor young transitioning veterans and military spouses, military does a great job in preparing if a moderate battle feel, but they need that mentor ship on campus and work city, third, fire, and develop veterans in your main business they will make you more successful. >> support impactful organization that help is entrepreneurs strongition -- transition, they can help with your time, expertise and money. eric: they have served so well.

on north korea's latest military test. hours after secretary of state rex tillerson's meeting with china's president today, not long before that sit down, north korea claims just successfully tested a new high thrust missile engine, drawing this response from secretary tillerson. >> i think we share a common view in a sense that tensions on the peninsula are high right now. and that things have reached a rather dangerous level. and we have committed ourselves to do everything we can to prevent any type of conflict from breaking out. we view there are a number of steps that we can take that are in front of us. uma: joining us now with insight. and reaction to latest development let's bring in retired four-star general jack keane. and chairman of institute for study of war with a fox news analyst, general welcome, good
to see you again. >> good to be here. uma: let's talk about the fact that right now it seems that tensions are high as secretary of state points out. and it is really. interesting to see how north korea is trying to stage its different tests, based on the actions of what it appears to be united states, you know, the meeting with china's president. and the fact that you know north korea is trying to send a message. is that what you think? >> this is in retaliation for talks that tillerson has had with chinese and south koreans and japanese, and strong statements that secretary tillerson made, and such a dise departure from obama administration. it has been a problem for 20 plus years, we had three presidents trying to stop north korea and developing nuclear arsenal, we're close to the
reality those weapons, can reach the united states. that is an unacceptable situation. all of our political economic and diplomatic effort to this point have failed, uma. uma: true, china has not had much luck in trying to convince north korea to back down, the fact that secretary of state, is being this open about the reaction and saying that you know this is a dangerous level. basically, trying to say that north korea is forcing the united states to go forward with some type of military action against the country? >> i think tillerson is being blunt and brutally honest with the reality that the united states, president, commander in chief is facing, that is that this country is getting dangerously close to launching a missile against the united states they repeated let's say they intend to i do so. not they are trying to deceive
it, they keep tells us there is their intent. what are we supposed to do with that reality. uma: where -- >> we have tried for 20 plus years on get the chinese to do it. they enjoy the north korean's poking an eye of united states i believe, they don't' peninsula to be unified. they have been playing a very dangerous game here, uma. and i think that tillerson told them, i suspect, unequivically that north korea is pushing tucsonly option we'll have left -- tushing us to only option we is left, we know that could lead to war. that so that is reality, i hope he was able to convince chinese that this is unacceptable. uma: do you think north korea really has the sophisticated
weaponry at this time to have a missile hit the unite united st? there are those expert who believe it still lags in its technology. >> they have the nuclear arsenal. they are trying to fit them on a ballistic missile. which could reach all our military basis. yes, there are debates to how far along are they, how much progress have they been made? we're usually on the wrong side of this, we inunderestimated russia and libya and iran, and underrest middl estimated pakis. we're usually on the wrong side of this issue, i think that this administration wants to be on safe side of this issue, not
endanger the machine people. the american people. uma: if u.s. took some type of action against north korea what type of action would that be, from your point of view? >> to strike or cyber warfare, launch facilities that north korean have, a problem is that developing not just fix sites for these missiles, but also, mobile sites, that makes it more difficult for us to track that, you can bridg bridge bring brinm out of hiding and move it quickly, we would have to detect that quickly. we have air defense system that defend against at sea and also in united states but we don't want to just depend on that system, we have a missile in flight heading to a military bis base heading to u.s. we would knock out the launch
facilities to never launch a weapon against the united states, interest. uma: a very dangerous situation. >> it is. uma: president speaking out about it saying he is very upset about those actions, we'll see what is ahead, general thank you so much. >> good talking to you, uma. eric: back at home, president trump promising to bring back the jobs, a promise that helped him win in cold country. can he make -- coal country, cannily make good on that pledge, they are already seeing signs of life. >> taste of death but once? caesar on a caesar salad? surprising. excuse me, pardon me. what's not surprising? how much money matt saved by switching to geico. could i get my parking validated?

eric: we're told there are signs of life for coal industry, mining companies putting out help wanted signs again. some are wondering if the rebound is real or more of a nod on nostalgia. mike tobin with more. reporter: carlos is a career kentucky coal miner, he is mining coal. >> i am glad to be working. thankful i got a got a job again. reporter: a bounce in the
economy, created a need for steel. and a president moved in 2 in 2 started -- in who started rolling back regulations. here at perry county mine, since 2012 they laid off 40 guys, in last months they hired back 90. >> maybe this is a little come back, we're confident we're very positive about everything we're seeing since the november election. and president trump taking controls of the energy agencies that regulate the industry and all. reporter: as technology advances, equipment is more efficient, requiring less manpower. in obama years they used natural
gas. >> even though that coal is coming back, there will be employment in the future, but whether it will not unlikely go back to the way it was, 10 or 15 years ago. reporter: retail business people in little coal towns like hazard, kentucky, are happy for any comeback, but they know they will never come all the way back. >> when i started doing all of layoff my business went down. reporter: are the new hires due to something tangible that president has done or just a sense of optimism. because coal as a proponent in the white house, everyone with whom we spoke, from expert to the people in town, say it is more about the optimism. >> thank you, mike, we'll be right back, from dallas. weetene, plus 10 grams of protein weetene, and 25 vitamins & minerals.
